FALLS CHURCH, Virginia (July 1, 2009) – The Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL) celebrates its fifth year anniversary this year.  To mark this important milestone, CEAL has established the Promoting Excellence in Assisted Living Awards Program.  Award applications can be completed online at CEAL’s website,  Applications will be accepted from July 1 – August 31, 2009.

One awardee will be chosen in each of the following six categories:

Any individual or entity, including assisted living communities, working in or involved with assisted living may submit an online application for work reflecting excellence in practice, policy or research. The applicant must be knowledgeable enough about the work to fully complete the application. If someone knows of a practice, policy, or research reflecting excellence but is not knowledgeable enough to complete the application, they may ask someone more knowledgeable about the work to complete the application. Multiple applications can be submitted by an individual or entity; however, only one application can be submitted for each category. Both non-profit and for-profit entities are eligible to apply for these awards.

Applications will be judged on the following criteria:

CEAL will recognize the award winners at a special anniversary celebration to be held in Washington, DC on October 27, 2009. All applicants or their representatives must be willing to attend this event if chosen for one of the awards. Winners will be notified no later than October 2, 2009. Awardees will receive a certificate commemorating and recognizing their work of excellence. In addition, CEAL will showcase the winners’ work of excellence in a webinar that addresses the award (e.g., person-centered care, workforce) category. The award winning practice, policy or research will also be included in CEAL’s Clearinghouse Practices of Excellence.
